Ben MolatziNo Way To Go ... CD
Cree (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
The rough-cut image on the front cover is a perfect accompaniment to the music on the disc – the first-ever issue of recordings made by Namibian guitarist/singer Ben Molatzi – tracks recorded both in the studio and out in the field, with a wonderfully stripped-down sound overall! Molatzi's got a quality that's really timeless, and very different than most other music coming out of the southern side of Africa during the early 80s – acoustic guitar as the only instrumentation, but neither folksy, nor old school West African at all – instead maybe used as this way of inflecting Ben's really beautiful, spiritual vocal approach – a mode of vocalizing that sometimes takes wordless directions, or which is echoed by whistling and other vocal effects too. The music is impossible to describe in easy words, but is instantly powerful and captivating – on titles that include "Aesa Khaure", "Tae E Ta Go Di", "Danisa Sam", "Sida Lhu", "Gamrona Om", "Ausi Nama", "Dama Hao", "DRMD", and "Ben's Fluit Iiedjie".

✨✧ Tim BuckleyLook At The Fool ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Very Good ... $9.99
The last album that Tim Buckley ever gave the world – and a great leaping-off point for speculation about what he might have done, had he not left the planet too soon! Tim's actually beginning to explore a bit of funk in his music here – still using that amazing voice with all of its range from the early Elektra years – but often set to backings that feature heavy drums from Earl Palmer, tight bass from Chuck Rainey, and keyboards from Mike Melvoin – all cats who can be tight, but never slick – and whose groove is more than loose enough to let Buckley direct the whole proceedings. Given that Tim has an occasional raw rasp, and a very offbeat way with his lyrics, the mix of elements is actually not that far from the funk of Betty Davis on her first two albums – with a similar shrug towards any easy genre categorizations. Titles include "Freeway Blues", "Look At The Fool", "Tijuana Moon", "Mexicali Voodoo", "Down In The Street", "Wanda Lou", and "Bring It On Up". (Rock, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album

Tim BuckleySefronia ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great later album from Tim Buckley – one that really shows him evolving his style in the last few years before his tragic early departure from this planet! Tim's working in a style here that's oddly heavier and with more bluesy overtones than some of his classic 60s albums for Elektra – almost reaching for a stronger style that competes with other singer-songwriters who were beating his action at the time! We're not saying that the album's slick or overly commercial – just recorded with a fuller sound, and less of the light jazz-tinged folk styles used in earlier years. A few of the tunes are done in the older Buckley mode, but others have strings, backing vocals, and other larger arrangements. Titles include "Quicksand", "I Know I'd Recognize Your Face", "Martha", "Peanut Man", "Dolphins", "Honey Man", "Because Of You", and "Sefronia – The King's Chain".

Michael OostenMichael Oosten (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Lion, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the most hypnotic folk albums we've ever heard – far from any sort of conventional folk of the 60s, and more in a moody style of 70s singer-songwriter material from the underground – yet graced with these acoustic guitar lines that ebb and flow wonderfully – creating a circular feel alongside the vocals, with the same sort of energy we might find in the work of Sandy Bull! Michael Oosten's music is more lyric-based, but even his smart words know the right points to give way to the guitar – and let its elliptical lines flow forth and really bring the tunes home. The original album's a real Midwestern obscurity – but it's the sort that also should have gotten much wider circulation at the time, due to the quality of the music. Titles include "Hey Babe", "Garden", "Sunny Day", "Wave Faring Boy", and "Hungry Horse Montana". (Rock, Folk/Country) LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 – with a heavy cover and great booklet too. Hand silk-screened jackets, using the original screens!)

Buck OwensComplete Capitol Singles 1971 to 1975 ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 26.98
The final chapter of Buck Owens' singles run at Capitol Records – and a set that's maybe the most interesting of the bunch! After bursting out as an instant success back in the 60s, Buck was struggling a bit on the charts during the following decade – despite, or maybe because of, some huge success on the TV screen. Yet that shift also prompted Owens to really open up his bag, recording some material that was a great change from the straight, tight songs that graced so many of his earlier Capitol singles – a move that includes a fair bit of bluer-tinged material that not only show a whole new side of Buck's personality, but also reflect some of the issues he was struggling with at the time. These are also mixed with a few surprisingly strong novelty singles, and other material that continues to open the bag in a really great way. The 2CD set features 42 tracks in all – including some great lost singles that aren't nearly as well-known as other material – with titles that include "On The Cover Of The Music City News", "Arms Full Of Empty", "The Good Old Days", "Made In Japan", "Full Time Daddy", "You Ain't Gonna Have Ol Buck To Kick Around No More", "Get Out Of Town Before Sundown", "Weekend Daddy", "41st Street Lonely Hearts Club Band", "Great Expectations", "Stony Mountain West Virginia", "Ain't It Amazing Grace", and "I Love You So Much It Hurts".

Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Great work from a series that never gets old – and which, if anything, seems to keep digging deeper and deeper with each new volume! If you know that, as the Louvin Brothers tell us, Satan Is Real – then you'll find plenty to spook your soul here – and we don't just mean the creepy cover! As with previous volumes, the tracks are a superbly-selected batch of songs from the farther reaches of country music – dealing with themes of temptation and salvation, awash with all the evils of mankind that weren't washed away in the pulpit! Titles include "Satan's Wife" by Jesse Floyd, "Turn Your Radio On" by The Statemen Quartet, "It's Nothing To Me" by Loy Clingman, "The Devil" by Ronnie Wolfe, "Satan's Suitcase" by Robert Zehm, "Devil Get Away From Me": by Roy & Georgia & The So & Sos, "Nightmare" by Jack Turner, Ghost Of A Honky Tonk Slave" by Cowbowy Howard Vokes, "On The Cross" by Margie Singleton, "Ghost Town" by Billy Massey, "Singing Shouting Praying" by Bill & Opal Carter with The Country Gents, "Fourth Man" by Reverend Tully McCoy, and "Please Devil" by Bobby Griggs.

VariousSocial Power Of Music (4CD & hardcover book) ... CD
Smithsonian Folkways, 1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 4CD ... $54.99 59.98
A fantastic little package – and one that may well have more meaning these days than ever before! The lavish set features a huge hardcover book – 124 pages of notes, photos, and other information – all put together in conjunction with a Smithsonian exhibition of the same name – which presents the undeniable power of music in the 20th century – themes of progress, politics, struggle, and achievement – spun out over a variety of different genres that include blues, folk, jazz, gospel, and a huge amount of global styles too! As you'd guess from the label, many of the tracks come from the rich holdings of the Folkways label – but other imprints have also been folded into the mix, which makes for a really fantastic assemblage of music. 4CDs feature over 80 titles in all – with work by Woody Guthrie, Joe Glazer, Rumel Fuentes, Sandoval Begay, Cantor Abraham Brun, The Old Harp Singers Of Eastern Tennessee, Pete Seeger, Strange Creek Singers, Inger Nielsen, Grupo Raiz, Caravan, Mikis Thedorakis, Chippewa Nation, Lester Bradley & Friends, Sam Brothers Five, Austin Pitre, John Littlehohn, Quetzel, Kristin Lems, and many others.

VariousTeenage Rebels ... CD
Rock Beat, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $4.99 11.99
Nasty cats with plenty of attitude – all stepping out here in an assortment of weird and wonderful singles from the farther reaches of the indie underground at the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – the kind of strange, offbeat records you'd associate with a package issued under the name of The Cramps! The CD features tunes that are a perfect accompaniment to the juvenile delinquent paperback rage of the 50s – and titles include "Motorcycle Mack" by Terry Ann, "Betty Lou's Got A New Tattoo" by The Creep, "Savage" by Alan Barnicoat, "Juvenile Delinquent" by Ronnie Allen, "Wild Boy" by Rock Holman, "She's A Moonlighter" by Johnny Carlton, "Little Blonde Girl" by Don French, "The Big Black Jacket" by Marcel St Jean, and "The Wild One" by Ricky & The Stompers.

✨✧ VariousTruckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels – The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock Vol 2 – 1969 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing second chapter to this wonderful series – and like the first, a perfectly-chosen batch of tracks that shows the return of country styles to rock music at the end of the 60s! Most of the artists here are those of the LA scene – who had a surprisingly strong respect for the sounds of Bakersfield and Nashville – but the set also includes some other artists who really fit into the mix well – almost all of them big names of the time, or of later years – but working here in a sound that's still very fresh, and free from all the cliches that crept into country rock in the 70s! Bear Family really took a lot of care with the whole thing – and the set features over 50 pages of notes, telling the track-by-track tale of country rock from 1969 – a set of 23 titles that includes "Level With Your Sense" by The Corvettes, "Sin City" by The Flying Burrito Brothers, "Texas Me" by Sir Douglas Quintet, "Drug Store Truck Driving Man" by The Byrds, "Up On Cripple Creek" by The Band, "Make Me Smile" by Poco, "We Need A Whole Lot More Jesus" by Linda Ronstadt, "Ruby" by The First Edition, "I'm Movin On" by Elvis Presley, "Vaccination For The Blues" by The Sanland Brothers, and "Who's Gonna Mow Your Grass" by Buck Owens.
